"it enables your body to work as it's supposed to without using one of the anti-gravity machines that never will get you to the pull-ups you need to." bruce says if he can do just one upper body exercise this is it. "this is anaerobic training that fuels glycogen, elevating your heart, by- product which is lactic acid and that tends to slow you down, make it harder." toward the end of the 50, i was grunting. yes. i'm "that person" in the gym. "49. one more. 50." "one more!" "are you serious?" "yes. one more. beautiful." bruce says on pullups you're only as good as your biceps, so he taught me
